4 Ways to Get Even More from Your Workouts!

You already know that exercise serves as a key component to a medical weight loss plan. But exercise can also boost your mental health.

How to Avoid Weekend Binges

Some of our medical weight loss clients report a certain pattern to us: They feel that it’s relatively easy to follow their eating plan during the week, but then on the weekend they decide to reward themselves with a little treat.

5 Foods to Fight Inflammation

Inflammation is not always a bad thing. When we’re sick or injured, our immune system activates an inflammatory response to help us heal. But in some people, that activation doesn’t end. Instead, the immune system begins to attack our own bodies, and over time chronic inflammation can lead to autoimmune disorders and other health problems. Studies have even linked inflammation to serious conditions like heart disease and cancer.

Luckily, there are steps you can take to reduce inflammation in your body, and help yourself to get healthier. Diet plays a big role in either promoting inflammation or reducing it, so adjust your diet accordingly.

The following types of foods are known to fight inflammation and help your body return to a healthy balance:

  • Foods that are high in fiber, such as whole grains, brown rice, beans, and legumes
  • Fruits and veggies, which are high in vitamins and antioxidants
  • Unsaturated fats from foods like salmon, olive oil, nuts, and seeds
  • Herbs and spices like ginger, turmeric, curcumin, and rosemary
  • Green tea or hibiscus tea

A diet focused around the above foods is not only good for reducing inflammation; it can also help you follow a medical weight loss plan and stay healthy otherwise. On the other hand, certain foods are known to increase inflammation and can also lead to weight gain and other health problems. Avoid things like overly processed foods, snacks high in sugar and salt, or those high in saturated fats. And of course, excessive consumption of alcohol is unhealthy for numerous reasons, but it is also known to increase inflammation.
